  4. Hi, Sorry to drag up an old topic, but the council have finally come back to me. Yes they will sell us the land, but they have advised that the previous owner put a stipulation on the land stating that if the council sell it on the next owner cannot build on it. I don't understand how this can be the case?
  5. Hi folks, Thanks for the further updates. Yes this was an unknown at the time of booking (to be honest she wasn't even pregnant it was booked that long ago. Our insurance is with Virgin insurance. Also when we travel she will be 22 weeks. I am pretty sure that this is fine to travel, I would prefer not to get a doctors letter trying to get something to say she is unfit to travel, just don't want to tempt fate really. If I can't claim it on the insurance, then I will just accept the loss (our own fault for not being careful, but its a good thing it happened) I suppose one t
  6. Yeah, this is pretty much what I am asking. We don't really want to go due to the cost of a hotel and stuff. We feel that we could really spend the cash better elsewhere. But we will lose out on our flight money. She doesn't have any medical problems or anything, which is a good thing. Just trying to see if we can maybe not lose out on the cash. The only reason I ask, is because when I asked easyjet for a refund (don't ask don't get n all that jazz) they replied with this Oh and thanks for the congrats
  7. Hi, Looking for some advice. We paid for some flights via easyjet at the start of the year costing around £500. My Wife is now 3 months pregnant, and we don't think we can really afford to pay for a hotel for us and the 2 kids with another on the way, so we were going to transfer the flights to next year. This alone costs a fortune as you need to pay per flight (one way) per person. My Insurance policy says the following, the 1st price in ££ is what we have. Included in the coverRedSilverGoldBlack Cancellation and curtailment£2,000£3,000£5,000£7,500 Medical Expenses
  8. Thanks Shelly, good to know. Succesfully claimed back from one of my banks a few years ago, so I will need to find any old info I have on these cards.
  9. The responses I have are that they will be doing some work on the drainage. I don't have anything else from them, and certainly nothing admitting it was there fault. Should I pursue with a complaint to the council 1st, and see what they say?
  10. Hi, I have a piece of land beside my house, and this is not a flood plane. It is bushes, and trees. There are 2 drains at this land and they had fences built over them by the council, which led to the area being flooded on several occasions. One of the times I had to make a claim through my buildings insurance, which shot the insurance right up. I have tried to get insurance since then, but been told that they want assurances we will not be flooded again (bit like asking me to stop it raining!) Anyway, the council has since moved the fences to go around the drains. I have pictu
  11. I don't know if I was mis sold it, I definetely had it, but it clearly wasn't usable when I tried to use it. So I suppose yes I was, as I believed this would cover me being sacked and reinstated
  12. Hi, I have now been told that they have postcarded my neighbour about us buying this land. I assume this is to see if there are any objections. I am still hoping that they give me some sort of discount due to the flooding we got and the fact that they are not maintaining it, but I don't imagine that they will!
  13. Hi, Back in early 2000 - 2003 I had credit cards that I defaulted on, and they all had the insurance on them. I know this as I was sacked from a job, and was unable to claim the insurance on them, which was what then led me to default. When I appealed the decision to sack me from the job, I was succesful and got it back, however this took a full 6 months, and by this time i was in real trouble with the cards. They didn't seem to care as I tried to get them to pay through my insurance I had taken out, and as I was no longer sacked. Is there anything I can do about this, or shoul
  14. Hi, I checked, and the land is not a flood plain. Basically the council had a fence blocking the drains, we got flooded, and after we complained they have moved the fence, and also put in an extra drain. No flooding since then. I just want to use this to try and push forward my case of getting the land from them, with them not cutting the trees, but also from the fact that they blocked the drains initially. And even maybe get it cheaper. Chased them 4 times since my last reply and still heard nothing back Kind Regards Colin
  15. Does it help that I was flooded a few years ago because the council built a fence over the drain, and they have since moved this fence, and it no longer floods? I have pictures of this also
  16. Hi Buzby, this is probably a strip of land attached to the side of my house, thats probably the same area as my front and back Gardens, including the house in the middle. All, I would be looking to do would be extend the Garden, until I can purchase it to then then maybe sell the house with planning permission, or even build on it myself at a later date Regards Colin
  17. Thanks for the informatin guys, I will look into George Square, and also see about putting in this application. I really think I need to find out more about it.
  18. Hi Guys, Couldn't find the right section, or best section to put this. I have a wee question. I live in Scotland, and there is a piece of land at the side of my house owned by the council. I am currently looking into buying this land, but its already taken a few years, and I still don't even have a price. Anyway, the land is fenced, and it has loads of bushes, tree's etc inside it. I have been calling the council asking them to cut it for ages now, and they have still not done it, they have even suggested that its 1 of the local places that own the land and not them. When I tel
  19. Hi guys, any chance someone could give me a wee hand with the letter please Regards Colin
  20. Hi Major, did you get a chance to look at this again mate. Welcome are harrassing me again from a new number at least 4 times a day Regards Colin
  21. Hi Major, I forgot all about this thread, until the calls started again from Welscum. yes I saw a Broker, and no the broker fees were not pointed out to me, but I don't know how I would prove this? That sounds like a good start. It would be much appreciated if you could draft a letter for me, as I feel I get too angry when I write these things. Kind Regards Colin
  22. Hi guys, can anyone spot anything that could help me out? Phone calls have stopped for a few days now at least, but I did block the number from my mobile
  23. Thanks Buzby, looks like I will need to try and trade it in somehow
